Ghost of a Tale Giveaway [Ended]

OMG! This game has been on my wishlist since forever*! And March 22nd is my birthday so… I’m entering.

*

Our lovely @eishiya (and now I see @anon74641759 too!!! :smiley: edit: and @Rilover!) already shared my absolute favorite animal in the world, that also happens to be a rodent, the majestic capybara, so here’s something else instead:

The Mouse’s Tale by Lewis Carroll

This poem, one of the most famous English examples of emblematic verse, appears in chapter three of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Its title bears the distinction of being a quadruple pun. Martin Gardner notes in The Annotated Alice that it may have been inspired by Tennyson, who “once told Carroll that he had dreamed a lengthy poem about fairies, which began with very long lines, then the lines got shorter and shorter until the poem ended with fifty or sixty lines of two syllables each. (Tennyson thought highly of the poem, but forgot it completely when he awoke.)”

To read the poem in higher res and read more about it, go here.

Here’s an illustration:

I’d really like to win this game, not for me but as a gift for my boyfriend who keeps saying he absolutely wants to play this game! I hope this is okay :sweat_smile:

As for your cute rodent, I’ve got this one. I and my friend found this little one in her grandma’s garden back in 2013, it looked really sick and wasn’t really afraid of us (or maybe it was too sick to be?). We named it Tityu (can’t remember why, but it sounded cute) and gave it some things to eat and a comfortable place to rest.
The sad part is that this poor little thing died in the night two days later, but we still have some photos (all blurry, but oh well).

The game is meant to be played and enjoyed, He’s not some rando, It’s fine by me, so you/yr boyfriend are in ^^ (I hope you get around to play with that copy too :sparkling_heart:)

Thanks for saying where It’s going tho.

Similar thing happened to me when I was tiny but with a hedghog and he died the same day we found It :confused: He didn’t have a name bc “I shouldn’t get attached to stuff so quickly, specialIy animals in such conditions” I cried so much anyway.

He’s buried in a corner of the garden and nobody puts stuff or goes there so I always thought of It as a cool, eerie part of the garden and I remember the little guy/girl from time to time ^^

Tityu looks adorable btw :heart_eyes:

AHH this game looks way too cute I remember seeing this awhile back an IMMEDIATELY thinking of reading The Tale of Despereaux as a kiddo, then seeing the movie once I was a bit older. It looks like a blast, be it action/adventure or exploration, both are in my wheelhouse. I can’t wait to play because I know it will be slightly nostalgic for me since I read the book a couple times before 13.
Look at one of the drawings in the book, he is too cute <3

Omg that’s my new spiritual animal :sparkling_heart:

Okey so… I tried to be funny and did the proper “Cowmouse search”… welp, I shouldn’t have done that.

Apparently Sharkmice are a thing and I’m quite happy, still traumatized… don’t get me wrong but… yeah…

If there’s a water level and Tilo has a similar costume, I will scream.
